Lexi Smart is a 28-year-old career girl who's constantly aware of her shortcomings: crooked teeth, frizzy hair, and a frumpy wardrobe. She missed the salary bonus at the floor-covering company where she works because she's been there less than a year. The day before her father's funeral in 2004, she slipped and fell into the path of an oncoming cab; when she comes to in the hospital, it is 2007. She has been transformed, with perfect teeth, a new figure, an updated wardrobe, a bank balance, and a love life. She has absolutely no memory of the intervening three years, during which she won a reality TV show contest, became director of the carpet department, and married a multimillionaire real estate developer. Her reputation has also changed, from warmhearted chum to heartless, success-driven bitch. Mixed signals and mishaps make an endearing comedy, as Lexi tries to make sense of her new surroundings. Narrator Rosalyn Landor spins the first-person story perfectly, expressing the full range of Lexi's emotions and characterizing the rest of the cast with precision and clarity. An excellent choice for popular fiction collections.

Kinsella's engaging tale of a woman who loses her memory of the past three years after an accident and tries to put the pieces together, only to discover that her life inexplicably underwent a Cinderellaesque transformation in those three years, shines on audio. Charlotte Parry's delightful first-person narration makes Lexi such an immensely likable character that listeners will want to spend time with her. Parry voices the other characters precisely: Lexi's snobbish husband, Eric; her vague and fluttery mother, breathless and shallow socialite Rosalie, and an assortment of friends and co-workers. Each characters is vividly brought to life in a distinctive way by Parry's superb narration. This lively, entertaining chick lit audiobook is the perfect choice for beach listening.
